“There was no trace that night” #poem #poetry #verse

There was no trace that night 
Of moon nor stars
For to shine a light 
Upon the way for the earthly traveller below 
For over the realm entire
There settled a deep blanket of gauze 
In wisps of swirling mists
Amid a heavy fog
Though insubstantial yet impenetrable 
Like the state of a dream sequence 
Elusive and enigmatic 
Thus it was that upon such a night 
A call ethereal was uttered
For to summon the pilgrim and the solitary 
The sanctuary of night for to seek
The spirit to cleanse 
The soul to lift and encourage
The heart to heal and fill
With the vigour and lusty appetite 
For very life and all its fruits                                                
d.a.simpson
